This aircraft has significant damage to its carbon fibre hull and that's the bits we can see....

Notice the scarring to the inner hull not just the floppy panels around the wing torsion box and undercart area - which fly off very easily- especially in -flight as the A380 test team can atest to..

How on earth are the repair team going to get the thing mended to the state it can fly to France for heavy fixing?

And I agrre, those tyres indicate locked wheels not aquaplaning
